some funding to a lower level. defense was based on the list of people that got money back. it is not surprising. defense spending can generally get bipartisan agreement the meat inspectors were looking at furloughing their employees for two weeks. it could shut down almost all meat production in the country. they have restored that and they're looking at possibly avoiding those. they will figure out if they can do it and the bill and the numbers are complicated. host: here is a headline from one of your competitors -- back to the phones -- kingston, ill., on our line for republicans. caller: i have been a republican for years and years. it is not my great- republican party anymore. i am worried because i feel sorry that i am a republican but i feel sorry for the republicans. they are not doing so well and i could not get away with the gop does at their jobs at my job. i feel sorry for them. what i worry about most is granted paul. i am --rand paul. and i am an old time lutheran. rand paul is not to be trusted. it is important to know exactly the religion of our candidates.
at this time. another factor on iran. the new defense minister in israel, who is not viewed as hawkish on the issue. i cannot find one member of the security establishment that is for containment. i have been looking for years, and i cannot find them. right now, their view is if america is leading, holdback, but if america does not lead, the same people that have been urging caution will be the same people urging israel forward. i think a certain level, the tone will be very different from the past defense minister, but the message will not be fundamentally different. what about the other issues? here i think another issue that could come up in the meeting is the issue of circassia. it definitely will come up. in an operational sense, there is a debate brewing in israeli policy circles about how active israel should be in going after hezbollah convoys, taking out weaponry. i find there is nobody in israel that i met that since the united states -- maybe you think this is a big mistake --of all the people i talk to, cannot meet anyone who thought the u.s. would be decisive in syria. the
the court therefore strike down the defense of marriage act which is one of the cases it will be hearing this week which bans federal benefits for same sex couples legally married in their state. would you streak down that as federal interferences in a state matter? >> you know, i think it is a really complicated issue. i always said that the states have the right to decide. i do believe in traditional marriage. kentucky decided it and i don't think the federal government should tell us otherwise. there are states that have decided in the opposite fashion and i don't think the federal government should tell anybody or any state government how they should decide this. marriage has been a state issue you for hundreds and hundreds of years. doma is complicated because it does provide protection for the states from the federal government part of it federalizes the issue. there is a chance the court could strike down the federalization part of it. if they do i think the way to fix it is maybe to try to make all of the laws more neutral towards the issue. i don't want the government promoting

of egyptian air defense and arab forces, as well as the ground -- including the ground forces of egyptian military and arab forces as well as the ground war threatening. a bulletin that will remain in my mind forever stated as follows. the exercise and activities under way in egypt may be on a somewhat larger scale and more realistic than previous exercises. bey did not appear to preparations for a military offensive against israel. i remember distinctly putting to bed this current intelligence bulletin friday evening. stopping by the operation center to see any new intelligence had arrived. i was told that fatah had gone on a war footing. this worried me a bit. i thought about calling an analyst to take a look at this and other material that seem to be flowing in increased volume into the office center. it was friday and had been a long week, so i went home. my home telephone rang on a october 6. my wife passed the phone to me. on the other end of the connection was john paisley. work.d come to report to lehman. declaim and will chair at 0900. he further stated the combined armies of egy

that show about president obama's real instincts. is he going to war with iran in defense of a country -- that is what netanyahu has to worry about. if to publicly treat netanyahu that way it weakens his opposition in middle east because the allies see how we treat the main allies and discourages allies. >> sean: if you are netanyahu and i see obama giving f-16s, tanks, $1.5 billion to the former head of the muslim brotherhood, mohammed morsi who think the israelis are descendants of apes and pigs, i know what i would be thinking? >> we can control with the egyptian military. >> sean: the military leadership has been changed by morsi. his puppets are in charge? >> we can control it but no rationale for a pegs and morsi the fact is things he has said insults he has toward the israelis and jews and whole attitude, all of that. it goes back to when we threw mubarak under the buses. >> sean: and what happened to the arab spring it was an arab nightmare. i was on the air every night. ambassador bolton were there. there were v some of us and article said i was muslim brotherhood obsessed. ho
the effects of our carbon dioxide emissions on our atmosphere and oceans. our defense and intelligence communities warn of the threats posed by climate change to national security and international stability. economists recognize the distortion of energy markets that overlook the true cost of carbon pollution, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something
to all of the aid his administration is providing, including iron dome and defense funding for israel during difficult times, he as announce that we will begin talk is on another 10 year process to ensure american military assistance to israel. this is very significant. i want to express my thanks for everything you have done. i went to thank you for the statement new made. it is very important. i think israelis will judge this by the unfolding events and what is taking place. there is a very simple answer to your question, the gentleman from nbc. this is second term president and third term prime minister.

,000 wounded. the defense department reports $32 billion has been spent since 2003. tom cotton served as a platoon leader. as a fiscal conservative i asked if it was right to take the country to war without asking the americans to shoulder more of the financial burden. >> the american people have paid a great price for the ishlgs rack w iraq war. many more who served and the toll it took on their families. today is the day we should remember their sacrifices and they deposed a dictator and freed 30 million arabs and set up a way. national security is the first priority of the u.s. government, i think the war was worth it. we have to preserve the gains we achieved over the last ten years and beyond, but i think the war is worth it. >> do you think the war is to blame for the deficits we see these days? >> no. it's really not. if you look at where defense spending is today either as a percentage of the economy or budget, it's below post-war norms. under the president's budget it will fall more rapidly. the main cause that we saw today of the explosive growth in spending over ten years,
entitlements. the house does, and house largely leaves defense alone, senate does not, without sounding like opening of the odd couple how can different budget authors get together without driving each other crazy? by seeing where their common ground sudde isn't so crazy. there is more to the polar opposites than might meet the eye. when a possible breakthrough dial that might, might, break a logjam, it is true, i feel it in my bones. do i have rocks in my skull? i guess sherri, i am looking at you, and i am looking at how republicans -- versus their own, but i do see, an attempt on part of senate while they do raise taxes, i'm never a fan of that. they don't deal with additional income tax hikes, that lead niece believe there is a correctioner there for commensurate to satisfy boy? >> i think there is their first offer, it will have to be democrats who compromise more. if you want to look into a crystal ball. if is no coincidence that handful of democratic senators who voted against senate budget were up for reelection next year. they know that their constituents and the country is not goi
an iron dome defense system to protect israelis from rockets coming out of hamas or southern lebanon. so they're in lock step on a number of key issues there have been these dust ups along the way. but i think those are the exception to the rule, which is a very functional u.s./israel relationship. >> are we at a stage now, aaron, where there is no longer as much pressure regionally to do something about the israeli/palestinian negotiations because there is so much of a crisis atmosphere given what's happening on the border of all of these countries, the relationship with egypt, the morsi government, the war in syria and the revolutions and the arab spring have created a completely new context. >> it's very true, the region is as broken, angry and dysfunctional as i've ever seen it. most of it is not the fault of this president. but the reality is this israeli/palestinian issue still resonates. it's the one issue that emotionally, ideologically, politically, still unite as dysfunctional and divided arab world. the problem the president has, i'll sum it up very clearly -- the two-state so

.s./japan mutual relationship, both the mutual defense treaty and our bilateral general relationship would be central. but we also thought that asia deserved fully a broader treatment in its own right, so we really invested in the future. as we look ahead in terms of our asian studies center, we look also to other achievements in both the range of foreign and strategic issues as well as economic policy issues. in fact, today they are also interlinked that it is hard to distinguish one from the other. but today as we look ahead there is no one i can think of whom i would rather hear from and help us both to celebrate these anniversaries and to look ahead in terms of developments in the asia-pacific region. the chairman of the house foreign affairs committee, ed royce, is an old friend of the heritage foundation. he is also a real leader on foreign affairs. he has been actively involved in a very principled and substantial way with u.s. policy toward asia since he first came to congress 11 terms ago. representing california's 39th district, we are, indeed, very honored both to have the chair
thought was going to happen, because he saw a handful of republicans on shows saying if any of the defense spending increases are not carried out, when he missed was they were recycling the same four or five republican politicians and that is certainly not where the country is, not with the moderate republican party and not where the republicans in the house and the senate art. there are guys on the spending committee that would like to spend money and that's understandable but at the end of the day, we should probably figure out how to get the pentagon more flexibility that they need for the same amount of dollars promised the sequester as the rest of the government does and so the president misjudged, believing that republicans would panic during negotiations on the fiscal cliff. he kept waiting for the republicans to put the sequester on the table in order to give it away. that never happened. what the republicans did was -- and president obama thought the republicans were retreating. oh god i'm going to get my tax increase down the republicans are about to give up on the sequester. the

to a question the president seemed a little defensive about why the united states during his administration has not authorized military force to stop the slaughter in syria. listen to this. >> i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily. if it doesn't, then people say, why aren't you doing something militarily? and, you my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing them into the blothem -- an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. >> did you get the sense the president is on the same page as far as syria is concerned with jordan king abdullah nearly half a million syrian refugees have poured into jordan over these past two years. >> dealing with the refugee crisis, yes. the president says we'll send more money. we'll try to get more humanitarian aid. i'll pick up the phone and get you more help. nobody knows what page they're on when it comes to th
election. this says more about republicans than i want does about hispanics. defense of the unborn, defense of traditional marriage are republican issues that should resonate with latinos but have been obscured by the perception that republicans are hostile to immigrants. >>> so the rand paul calculation there is interesting because i think everybody thinks about rand paul as a possible 2016 candidate. there's this question was he seeing an opportunity get to the right of where the establishment is because that's where the space is much as mitt romney got to the right of rick perry back in the primary and i think this seemed to me a real indicator, tipping point moment whether paul would seize that opportunity and the fact he made the calculation he did seems to me to cement what i thought at first was possibly a conventional wisdom that cemented too quickly which is you'll see the gop establishment the conservative elite keep sort of coalition together on immigration reform. >> right. it's particularly interesting given that it was an opportunity to get to the right of marco rubio who is d
of american diplomacy; development, defense and -- what did i say, development, defense and diplomacy, of course. so i think that in a way will be part of her legacy, but it's very much a work in progress. and we have to see whether building on that continues. with the new secretary of state, with the second term of president obama. but i definitely think from what i've seen as a journalist that it is a valid approach that deserves to be looked at seriously. and i think that that is her overriding willing si. she was very much -- legacy. she was very much about the big picture. she realized that she came in at a time when there was a lot of talk about american decline, when america was facing a financial crisis, and the world was facing a financial crisis. and she was very struck by the perception that people had of the united states, of this country that she loves, she believes in american leadership, and people are asking her who are you? many what do you stand for? are you till a superpower? you know, everything seems to be going into meltdown in washington. so she reasserted that,
that echoed their respective commitment to israel's self-defense. >> mr. president, i want to thank you once again for always making clear that israel must be able to defend itself, by itself, against any threat. >> we will help to preserve israel's qualitative military edge so that israel can defend itself by itself against any threat. >> and if iran was the unspoken word in those remarks, it was the crisis in syria that brought a signal warning from the president to president assad's discredited regime. >> we have been clear that the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake. the assad regime must understand that they will be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to terrorists. >> and the president said his administration is fully investigating those claims of chemical weapons used in syria. nbc news chief foreign correspondent richard engle join us. the first question out of the gate was a robust one, asking the president about the slaughter of innocence in syria and the alleged use of chemical weapons there. the p
than ever before. that includes more support for missile defenses, like iron dome. it has saved many israeli lives. the american support for israel is unprecedented. it has never been stronger. that is a sturdy foundation we built on today as he addressed a range of shared challenges. as part of our long-term commitment to israel security, the prime minister and i agreed to extend military assistance to israel. our current agreement lasts through 2017. we have decided to extend it for years beyond. i'm pleased to announce we will assure that there is no interrupting of funding for iron dome. decisions i made last year, israel will receive approximately 200 million dollars this fiscal year. we will continue to work with congress on future funding of iron dome. these are further reminders we theirelp to preserve military edge so that israel can defend itself by itself against any threat. we also discussed a way forward for a two state solution between israel and palestine. i will be meeting with president abbas tomorrow and i'll have more to say on this topic and the speech i will deli

that did not like a defense missile, you have to knock one out that is worth $380 million, tell us about it. >> this is just ridiculous, larry, so $380 million in the continuing resolution that was just on the senate floor, over a trillion dollars in spending and yet we have sequester $380 million for a missile to nowhere that the army does not want that will never produce anything. we have already spent $3 billion on it. so my amendment was to strike that wasteful spending and by the way, it has bipartisan support. the democratic chairman of the armed services amendment called it a waste of money. can you believe it in we cannot strike $380 million of wasteful expending and put that money to real use for our troops and that's why -- >> you know, harry reid a accused the sequester of killing the eight marines. this terrible the exercise, reid of all people should want to save money in the pentagon in order to put more money back in training which i may add that the marine corp denied, but the point is, you are up his alley, why is he not behind you on this? >> i agree, if we cannot cut some

support of rand paul's filibuster to his fierce opposition of chuck hagel as secretary of the defense. senator cruz has already demonstrated he has no problem confronting the establishment and proved that again last week when he dared to question veteran california democrat dianne feinstein to justify why she thinks the government has the right to limit the second amendment rights. >> would she think that the fourth amendment searches and seizures could only apply to the specified individuals and not to the individuals that congress has deemed outside the protection of the bill of rights? >> i'm not a 6th grader. senator, i've been on this committee for 20 years. it's fine you want to lecture me he on the constitution, i appreciate it. just know i've been here for a long time. >> nobody doubts her sincerity and passion yet at the same time i would note that she chose not to question i asked: would it be consistent with the constitution for congress to specific which books are permitted and which are not? >> the answer is obvious, no. >> sean: following that exchanning cruz was hammere
before. that includes more support for the missile defenses, like iron dome which i saw today and which saved so many israeli lives. in short, and i don't think this is just my opinion, i think this would be shared, america's support for israel security is unprecedented and alliance between our nations has never been stronger. that the sturdy foundation we built on today as we addressed a range of shared challenges. as part of our long-term commitment to israel security. the prime minister and i agree to start extending military assistance to israel. our current agreement lasts through 2017 and we directed our teams to start working on extending it for the years beyond. i'm also pleased to announce we will take steps to insure that there's no interruption of funding for iron dome. as a result of decisions that i made last year, israel will receive approximately $200 million this fiscal year and we will continue to work with congress on future funding of iron dome. these are further reminders that we will help to preserve israel's qualitative military edge so israel can defend itself, by

single out the defense measures in this budget and to applaud, again, the leadership of the chairman on the budget committee for protecting our military, for giving it funding it otherwise would not have and the flexibility it needs to help protect and keep this country safe. the defense department is the one area in government where strategy should drive the budget, not the budget driving the strategy. and in the second way that it protects our military from a debt crisis, this budget as we've heard is designed to postpone and prevent a debt crisis caused by out of control reckless spending, anemic economic growth of the kind you've seen in countries in europe already. if that were to happen, not only would it impact families all across the country, when their interest rates for mortgages and farms and small piss and education increases, but it also crowd out all other kinds of priorities in our federal budget, it would immediately impact as well our troops, their families, and our veterans. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back his time. the gentl

assistant secretary of defense during the reagan administration and fox news analyst. good morning to you. >> good morning. bill: what is senator graham alleging about the survivors? >> he found the survivors first of all and turns out anywhere from 30 of them. some are still in the hospital. some were injured in the benghazi firefight. some got away clean but he wants to know a couple of things. first of all, if they come under subpoena, if they're subpoenaed before a congressional committee they are going to talk. what are they going to talk about? we warned them it was a dangerous neighborhood and we needed more support. they will also talk about the actual attack themselves. were they expecting to be rescued? could they be rescued? i think the more important question senator graham or who will have congressional committees will ask them what was your job there? why were you there? what was your function? were you buying weapons? were you trying to get ahold of weapons part of gadhafi's arsenal we failed to secure when we toppled gadhafi? if so that is a real indictment --. bill: if se

the minister of defense to intervene and remove morsi. others are calling for early presidential elections. even though mr. morsi's reign has been disastrous in many ways, it would be a terrible precedent for him not to continue his four years. the question of the boycotts will be revisited. i think that even though the 14 demands of the national salvation front are xcessive in many ways, many of the parties that are talking about boycott will eventually participate. >> michelle, how does the u.s. solve all of this or deal with it? per se? >> i never answered your previous question. about how significant will the next elections be? the constitution that was passed in december is vague in many disrespects. -- respects. it is troubling in many respects. where the country is going to go is going to depend on legislation that is going to be passed by this next parliament, especially if it were to serve out its full term. that will implement or not implement -- in the institution. so i think there is a lot at stake. what about the united states? to what extent can the u.s. nevertheless incomes
